RECAP

Women’s Highlights:

  • Auburn’s 200 free relay won (1:29.71) with three underclassmen.
  • Arkansas freshman Ayumi Macias won the 500 free (4:42.39) exactly one second faster than Auburn’s Zoe Thatcher (4:43.39).
  • Alabama proved their women’s team is also emerging as a sprint force, placing two in the top four of the 50 free. Junior Bailey Scott won in 22.50.
  • South Carolina’s Julia Vincent continues to dominate in diving, winning the 3-meter springboard by nearly 50 points (359.40).

Men’s Highlights:

  • Alabama and Florida clashed early in the 200 free relay, where Alabama’s depth overcame individual star Caeleb Dressel’s phenomenal lead-off leg (18.73) to win in an NCAA A-cut time of 1:17.20. Florida also achieved an A-cut time with a 1:17.29.
  • Florida’s Mitch D’Arrigo won the 500 free (4:16.87), although South Carolina finished second through fourth.
  • Dressel won the individual 50 free (19.28) and 200 IM (1:42.77). His 200 IM time is the top time in the country, as is his 50 free leadoff from the relay.
  • Alabama again defeated Florida in the 400 medley relay, this time by nearly 3 seconds (3:07.74 to 3:10.48), and achieved another A-cut time. Dressel split a 41.90 on the final leg for Florida.

Day Two of competition will feature the 200 medley relay, 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back 800 free relay and men’s 3-meter diving.

Doing 19.2 after a 18.7 and a 1:42 in the middle of the season….is that human?

Really hoping Caeleb swims Florida’s last chance meet between SECs and NCAAs, like he did his freshman year. Swim 200 IM, 200 Free, 200 Back.

My apologies, I thought you asked when we still stop hearing about him. Regardless, my point still remains

When he stops swimming fast? It’s their job to tell us about fast swims. You should probably get used to hearing about him, he doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
